New signs could help breathe new life into a landmark Pudsey pub which closed more than two years ago.

WLD recently reported that prospective licensee is interested in taking on the Bankhouse Inn, in Fulneck, Pudsey Рtwo-and-a-half years after it last closed its doors. 

This week plans for new illuminated and non-illuminated signage at the pub were given approval by Leeds City Council planners. New electric lanterns and floodlights for the pub’s beer garden were also approved.

A planning officer’s report concludes: “The signage would sit appropriately within the site and within characteristics of the immediate area and for this reason it recommended that consent is¬†granted.”

The plans were submitted earlier this month by Bankhouse owner Star Inns and can be viewed in full here.

  1. The place has been empty for over two years, the garden is overgrown, the beading is falling off the windows, and it looks like a derelict property! Yet every couple of months or so, the same old story is trotted out. “Someone has shown interest in it”! What,? That before they pull a pint, they will have to lay out over a hundred thousand quid to take the place on. In the current economic climate? I walk past the place every day with my dogs, and, in view of the current information that some ill informed person will take it over, I have come home today and decided to have a holiday, reminiscing about the place. Unfortunately, none of the tours I am looking t do holidays to Cloud Cuckoo Land!
